{October 4, 2007}   LeArN nOt To QuIt!!!

That’s what you should do if you want to be a successful artist, says David Bayles and Ted Orland in their book Art & Fear. “Learn not to quit” sounds like a DUH statement, but you’d be surprised at how many artists get so overwhelmed with fears of not being good enough, people not liking their work, ideas not be sharp enough or executed well, to the point of them just quitting art altogether.

David and Ted bring up some interesting points about how and why artists “stop” making art for a while, or “quit” making art, period. One reason is when they graduate college. Well, we’re all almost there right now, and I hope that none of us get to the point of quitting! The authors make a good point in differentiating between “stopping” and “quitting” the making of art. Stopping implies a break, in that you will pick it up again at a later time. Quitting is just that….quitting. No turning back, never doing art again.

This chapter of the book was interesting, and kind of gives you something to think about when it comes to your own art making and success in life, and how you think about your work while you make it. Definitely an interesting read.

{October 4, 2007}   Jessica and Jared Joslin

The artist couple, Jessica and Jared Joslin, not only have amazing work, but present it well on their websites. Jessica makes small and creepy (but awesome), sculptures out of collected materials she’s acquired since childhood. They include, but are not limited to, antique hardware, brass, bones, leather gloves, and cast plastic. Jared on the other hand creates paintings with images of circus people, 1920’s women at the beach, animal and human relationships, and occasional self portraits. Both artists have an amazing attention to detail that is to be admired.

Their joint website is set up really nicely, with one image from both of them as a link to their own individual site. Their sites are similar in color and layout when browsing images, but are still individualistic. Their images are very easy to navigate through, and each image includes at least one detail shot.

Here’s the URL to their site: http://www.jessicajoslin.com

OR you can just click on their link under my Links section to the right! ———————>>>
